02_Doumassou Plateau Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy foodstuffs (vegetables, cooking oil, fresh fish to resell).

02_Doumassou Plateau Group's story

This group was created in December 2012 and it is composed of energetic and supportive women who are all related by blood or live in the same neighborhood. This group's main business is selling foodstuffs and vegetables.
Mariama, standing on the right side of the picture with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is forty one years old, married and the mother of five children, all boys.
With the money received from the loan, she will buy crates of fresh fish, cans of palm oil and vegetable oil, vegetables, buckets of peanut paste, sacks of onions and potatoes, as well as condiments. She resells the products retail and provides supplies to many households in her neighborhood since it is a little remote from the central market. She has loyal customers and benefits from a few years of experience in this field.
The profits from her business enable her to strengthen her savings, to supply her house which she recently renovated by tiling the interior and to help her husband pay for their children's school fees.
